The trouble with this patch is that, without some follow up patch, it
adds Kconfig symbols and preprocessor checks that are pointless for
mainline. I think we should not do that. (I'm also not sure how having
those bits in mainline substantially benefits out of tree development.)

But if you would put this in a series that also adds the code using
these bits, than I'd have no reason to object (and neither would, I
guess, the bots checking the tree for issues like that).
